Are tremors a side effect of consuming a mosquito repellent?
Q: I am a 27 years old male who was in depression a few days back. I consumed a mosquito repellent to commit suicide. I felt tremor like sensation all over my body. Is this a side effect of the mosquito repellent? Can it be cured?
A:Mosquito repellent contains insecticides, which are neurotoxic (toxic to nerves). However, tremors all over the body are unlikely to be a side effect. It may be a part of your depressive illness.
